Source/Mastering Notes:
Many drop out throughout the source tapes due to reel changes,
some were patched and others were edited out and crossfaded.
In the later case the patch would have been more abrupt than the edit.

One of the best sounding shows from 1976... period! A really fine performance with the exception of Stella Blue. Cruising right along, they put it in the ditch with this one. Sloppy segue and it's slow to the point of being ridiculous in the original sense of the word. Beyond that it's an incredible show and even Donna sounds good...and coming from me that is high praise indeed. Too many great things about this to mention. Do not pass this one by. 4 & 3/4 stars

This is a good show but I'm comparing it to the previous night's performance which is one of my all time favourites.
For me the first set was a bit slow. The second set starts with an incredible St. Stephen but things drop off for me until an amazing Dancing>Wheel. The Sugar Begonias is also excellent - I'd say the second best after 6/28/74.

Subject: WOW-st stephen!!!!
jerry's guitar comes through loud and clear and the band was fresh coming off their break. the patch in st stephen isn't really too bad. the band peaked on that and the next 2 songs. then donna seems to take over and you get sick of hearing her voice, but the show is well worth a listen anyway. great recording!!!!

Subject: SUPER BETTY SOUND
This has to be one of the best shows of '76! Great sound and remastering of the original tapes. Does anyone else hate Johnny B. Goode as an encore? Get this show it is great!
